    Wah! Nice, nice! Love the blue and so glossy! :adore:

    Like the advert on the glass, simple, at least it is properly done and not like most "ah beng" car stickers on road.

    Josh, just wondering - what's the purpose of the beads? Wouldn't those bubbles of water just collect dirt? How long does the coating last?

    bro, what do u mean by beaten up paintwork. Im a mobile detailer i come to you, not u come to me.

    Purpose of beadings? erm Just purely got pretty. Hydrophobic. It actually shows that the car is well protected. The coating last FOREVER. it was developed to last FOREVER!!!.

    For your question of what is the purpose of the beads. I think fishbonezken can answer that as he already did an extensive research and report write out on it

    the paintwork is dull with minor cracks as the car was left in the sun for quite some time. i think there is watermark too as according to some of the previous postings, and the headlights need a shine too.

    PS> ur location on ur profile is stated ipoh but i m in KL, or u in KL now? if so how's the charges like n how long would it take? thx

    Your car's very nice lah.. If I see you in Ipoh I surely will give you double horn, heheh.. I've read in other thread that you painted your car at Lau Motor Sdn. Bhd. in Menglembu. I can't seem to find the shop ler.. If you don't mind, can you give me the GPS coordinate? :biggrin: I also want to paint my car, but not very soon, waiting for the raining season to be over. Better do it in sunny weather I think..

    yes bro you are correct, sunny weather better. i painted my car for about 2months due to the weather. but Lau Motor Sdn Bhd has very professional range of baking room so i dont think there is a problem. They did a very good job for me because of my friendship with the director haha.

    haha i will surely know its you if u double honk haha.

    Actually about the beading, besides looking cool, it keeps the car cleaner for longer and easier to clean up.

    The hydrophorbicity pushes the water away from each other. As they do that, they push away contaminants as well. Compare 2 panels. 1 fully wetted with water (without coating/wax) and another with beading. The beading panel has far less area of water spread over it thus trapping less dirt.
